I would really love it if…

Saturday night Boo and I watched Disney’s Enchanted.  I really like that movie.  For one thing, it has Patrick Dempsy and you can’t go wrong with McDreamy.  For another thing, it’s actually a kind of cool concept: animated heroine gets banished to live-action world where she holds out hope of her animated Prince Charming (not his… Continue reading I would really love it if…

A thought on Iron Man 2 (and don’t worry, it totally won’t spoil anything)

Okay, so this weekend Boo’s brother and fiancee came down to visit and we went to see Iron Man 2.  Personally, I liked the movie.  I always like a movie where stuff blows up so there was that.  Robert Downey Jr. was kind of hilarious.  ScarJo was surprisingly adept at kicking butt while maintain perfectly… Continue reading A thought on Iron Man 2 (and don’t worry, it totally won’t spoil anything)

I think fresh fruit should come with an assistant

Spring is here and summer is right around the corner!  And do you know what that means?  Sun and margaritas outside and fresh fruit!  Fresh fruit that isn’t a gross, stupid banana or apple or pear.  Yuck.  (In all fairness, I actually like bananas, but after a winter of yucky fruit…well, you know).  With the… Continue reading I think fresh fruit should come with an assistant

Congratulations, U.S. government, you’ve just wasted thousands of dollars. Again

It was actually a letter telling us that we would be receiving the Census in the mail sometime in the next week and… Continue reading Congratulations, U.S. government, you’ve just wasted thousands of dollars. Again

Pop some popcorn, open the blinds and set up shop. This parking lot is free entertainment!

Unless you are living under a rock, you know that the northeast got hit with some snow this weekend.  A LOT of snow.  FEET of snow in fact.  And while this amount of snow is known to lead to entertainment in NYC, it didn’t do too poorly outside Philly either. I live in an apartment… Continue reading Pop some popcorn, open the blinds and set up shop. This parking lot is free entertainment!

Punxsutawney Phil should probably just retire

Yesterday was Groundhog’s Day.  And did that stupid little rodent see his shadow?  Of course he did.  Does that mean more winter weather?  Of course it does. But here’s the thing–even if he hadn’t seen his shadow, we’d probably end up with six more weeks of winter.  Six weeks from now is March and March… Continue reading Punxsutawney Phil should probably just retire
